Update: Zeller provided six points (3-7 FG) and seven rebounds across 17 minutes in Sunday's 106-73 Game 7 loss to the Heat.
Analysis: Zeller looked a little gimpy in the last two games of the series due to a knee injury suffered in Game 5, but he was able to tough it out and give the Hornets some quality minutes off the bench. The former No. 4 overall pick served in a starting role for much of the season, but after being roughed up by Heat big man Hassan Whiteside for the first few games of the playoffs, coach Steve Clifford opted to go with Al Jefferson as his starting center for the rest of the series. Zeller's reduced role down the stretch doesn't seem encouraging for his prospects entering 2016-17, but he'll still be coming off the best season of his career, during which he averaged 8.7 points and 6.2 rebounds.
